After a long time of rumors and teasing, we officially confirm that all-new 2017 Jaguar XE will soon hit the market. The vehicle arrives as the British answer to the powerful BMW 3 Series. The company intends to steal the show and overshadow the BMW 3 Series with its excellent 2017 Jaguar XE. One of the most significant changes when it comes to the 2017 model is that the vehicle will be built using new architecture. We know that the company has always built aluminum-intensive cars, but the upcoming changes will significantly reduce the weight of the vehicle. You can assume that there will be many changes in terms of exterior design, but it also appears that the performance of the car will be improved. Let’s check the details about the 2017 Jaguar XE together.
When it comes to the design of the upcoming model, it will be everything we expect from this kind of vehicle. The sports sedan will have a long hood and a short rear end. There is also a coupe-like roofline which appears to be inspired by the XF. The body lines of the car are deeply sculpted while the profile lines seem to be soft. The front fascia of the car is decorated with narrow headlamps and a sizeable grille. The bumper of the car is occupied by prominent air dams which are reserved for the XE S. The back of the car also hints strongly at the XF, especially the bumper and taillight areas. The base model is offered with 17 inch wheels, while higher trim levels can choose anything from 18” to 20”. Just like other Jaguar models, the vehicle is made out of the bonded, stiff and riveted aluminum. The 2017 Jaguar XE will sit on a brand-new modular platform and its structure will mostly be made out of lightweight 6000-series aluminum. The use of lightweight materials leads to an incredible weight loss.
The interior design of the 2017 Jaguar XE is clean but it yet doesn’t lack the luxury it needs to compete against great German rivals. Once you see its center console which separates the front seats, you will realize that the cockpit is driver-focused. Thanks to the recognizable wood veneers, and piano-black and aluminum inserts the cabin of the newcomer exudes a sense of luxury.
The 2017 jaguar XE arrives with all-new infotainment system. The brand-new system has an 8-inch touch screen display which shows everything from navigation to apps. There is also a Wi-Fi connectivity that allows up to eight devices to be connected at the time. There will also be Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
2017 Jaguar XE Engine
The 2017 Jaguar XE will be offered with several engine options, so the potential customers will be able to choose the engine which meets their needs in the best possible way. Currently, the most powerful engine for the 2017 jaguar XE is a 3.0-liter V-6 which is borrowed from the F-Type. This engine enables you to get the maximum output of 335 horses, while the level of torque is 332 lb-ft. The company finally opened the floodgates when it comes to European specifications so we can expect a plethora of options including a trio of petrol-burning drivetrains and two diesel drivetrains. All these engines will be a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder or single turbocharger. The engines will be coupled to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Diesel variants will also be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox. You have probably noticed that a V8 option is not offered, but don’t worry because the company won’t leave anything to chance. Sooner or later, the manufacturer will include the 5.0-liter supercharged V8.
